 l1=new label()
  AddHandler l1.MouseDown, AddressOf labelmouse_down
      AddHandler l1.MouseMove, AddressOf labelmove
 AddHandler Label11.DragEnter, AddressOf enter_server

    End Sub

Sub enter_server( _
                 ByVal sender As System.Object, _
                 ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs)

        Dim len As Integer = draggedlabel.IndexOf(":")
        draggedlabel = draggedlabel.Substring(0, len)
        serverP = serverindex
        serverref = sender.text

        If e.Data.GetDataPresent(DataFormats.Text) Then
            paste(len, draggedlabel, True)
            ' move variable 
            If MsgBox("Do yo want to move " & draggedlabel & _
         " from " & vbCrLf & server_names(serverP), MsgBoxStyle.YesNo) = MsgBoxResult.Yes Then
                e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Copy
                paste(len, draggedlabel, True)
                e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Move
                paste(len, draggedlabel, False)
            End If
            e.Effect = DragDropEffects.None
        End If

end sub
 Sub labelmouse_down( _

Here's a few things to fix first:

- add Option Strict On and Option Explicit On lines at the beginning of vb-file
- line 19: you refer to draggedlabel but you haven't declared it. Is it a label control in the form?
- line 22: sender is of type Object which does not have Text property and thus serverref = sender.text does not work. You have to cast sender to correct type first. If it's a label, use serverref = CType(sender, Label).Text - line 44: should be If e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left Then - lines 57 and 60: cast sender object to correct type, like CType(sender, Label) Simply fixing these type issues may solve your problem. I don't remember seeing an app that prompts a message box at DragEnter event but without actually testing it, I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work. In general I would personally take away that confirmation. If the user has an opportunity to drag&drop something, he/she usually knows what he/she is doing :)
